Advent Day 24 - Mary's Wedding Anniversary Labyrinth Quilt

Fabadashery Longarm Quilting - Custom Quilting
This is Mary's version of the 'Labyrinth' quilt using Stonehenge fabrics in browns and golds.  Mary made this quilt to gift to her family, who were celebrating a special wedding anniversary.  Mary had seen another custom quilted quilt I had done and wanted something similar for hers.  The Labyrinth quilt has lots of white / tone on tone spaces which are ideal for custom feathers and the like, so I was more than happy to help.

These photos were taken when the quilt was still on the longarm frame. When I am out and about doing talks, quilters all want to know how to do feathers - all I can say is practice, practice, practice.  I must have spent a year drawing feathers on paper before I had the courage to do them on a quilt, but when I did, my muscle memory knew what I was trying to do and I surprised myself at how good they looked. I wonder what new things I will be doing on quilts in 2020?
